Coach’s Log: Stanford IM Set

The Stanford Men have hooked up all you swimmers and swammers with another impressive workout video. Thanks to Cardinal Assistant Coach Scott Armstrong for sending this our way, Mason Shaw for producing the video, and the swimmer who went a 1:49 on the last 200 IM of the set. Wow.

Here’s the set:

600 (100 free, 50 IM order) @ 8:00

3 x [200 IM (HR 160-170)+ 100 Free] @ 4:30

600 (100 free, 50 IM order) @ 8:00

3 x [200 IM (Descend to all out)+ 100 Free] @ 5:00


Check out the Stanford Distance Set from earlier this season.

From a push and circle swimming, that is even more impressive.


I think the 1:49 is from David Nolan- I could see it in the backstroke. Can Garrett confirm??


Well seeing as one of the tags is david nolan, I’d say probably.


Unfortunately, my guess is as good as anyone else’s. But that’d be my guess, PVK.


Thank you. Also, do you have any opinion on what he will go in the 2 im at NCAA’S?
